Synopsis

A quiet Suffolk village, 1944. At 14, Gerald Haxton is a lonely boy who regards his stillborn twin, Jack, as his only friend. His mother, a famous children's writer, guards Jack's memory fiercely, claiming him as the model for her fictional boy detective, and Gerald, disturbed and unpopular, has no hope of competing.
